“Graceland” has officially started production in Ft. Lauderdale, FL! The new USA Network series is inspired by a true story about a group of government agents living undercover together in one house. Created by Jeff Eastin of “White Collar,” the 12-episode series has Daniel Sunjata (as Paul Briggs) and Aaron Tveit (Mike Warren) leading an ensemble cast. It is scheduled to air on USA in the summer of 2013. Check out a quote from Eastin below, along with an in-depth summary of what to expect when “Graceland” hits television screens:

Jeff Eastin: “When I first learned about the real Graceland, I knew this story was too good not to tell. People from three different government agencies living and working undercover in the same beach house – the amount of conflict, danger and fun that creates is incredibly exciting to me. Just as importantly, we want Graceland to break new ground for the network with a darker, grittier style.”

Graceland delves into the lives of an elusive group of undercover agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and US Customs, whose worlds collide at a repossessed Southern California beachfront mansion called Graceland (the house got its name because the drug lord from whom the authorities seized the house was known to be an obsessed Elvis Presley fan).

With three agencies living under one roof, ordinary roommate issues are amplified, as secrets are a matter of life or death.

Graduating at the top of his class, FBI rookie, Mike Warren anticipates a traditional DC desk job when he’s unexpectedly shipped to Graceland. Immediately thrown into his first undercover assignment, he relies heavily on the guidance of legendary FBI agent and mentor, Paul Briggs. Briggs is an unusually Zen senior agent who notoriously hates the rule book and will go to any length to protect Graceland from the outside world.
